Beginning on January 5, 2021, all new UMD Zoom recordings will be hosted on UMD Panopto servers instead of Zoom servers. UMD Panopto is the institutional platform for lecture capture and media management. This new process enhances security levels of these recordings and consolidates the storage of instructional media.

Implementation Details

  1. Starting on January 5, 2021 at 8 a.m. EST, all new Zoom recordings will be stored in and accessed via Panopto. New recordings will no longer be stored in Zoom.

  2. Starting January 19, all Zoom recordings created before January 5 will be automatically migrated to Panopto. These recordings will still be accessible from Zoom until the migration is complete. These recordings will be purged from Zoom later this spring.

  3. Information about this new process is available in the support article Zoom to Panopto Media Hosting Integration.

Questions about this security enhancement should be directed to the IT Service Desk.
